New pro-vegan documentary The Game Changers, a film which dispels myths about needing meat for top athletic performance, has finally been released and been met with rave reviews.
The documentary features high profile sports stars including Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic and Arnold Schwarzenegger – who are all executive producers.
The highly anticipated movie is out in cinemas now, and some viewers were immediately convinced to turn vegan.
Others said the film was a very important film capturing the immense power of a plant-based diet.
Another viewer was pleased that the movie ‘addresses the most common misconceptions people have about a plant-based diet with compelling stories of world-class athletes who raised their game when they changed their diet & became champions & superstars’.
“Honestly The Game Changers is an INCREDIBLE film, I’d advise anyone curious about veganism to give it a watch. Especially athletes! Made me curious how even more amazing @TWoffinden or other speedway riders would be if they went vegan,” another impressed viewer said.
Even for those who have been vegan for a long time, viewers appreciated how it made a ‘compelling case’ for anyone thinking of making a switch.
Others were simply blown away by the movie.
During the trailer, Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals ‘I ate a lot of meat’ in his past.
“They showed us commercials selling the idea that real men eat meat. But you’ve got to understand – that’s marketing. That’s not based on reality,” he says.
The Game Changers features interviews with Farris Kendrick, a weightlifter who has broken two American records, alongside a wide range of sports stars including body builders, cyclists, runners, American footballers, racing drivers and boxers.
“One of the biggest misconceptions in sports nutrition is that we have to have animal protein to perform at a high level. That’s just not true,” a narrator explains.
The documentary also speaks to sports stars who have recovered from injury faster on plant-based diets, and teams which have performed above expectations.
The filmmakers explain: “The Game Changers is a new film executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan that documents the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports, mixing real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph.
“The film features some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet – and it’s backed by them too – with additional EPs including Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic, and nine-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul.
“Directed by Oscar®-winner Louie Psihoyos, follows the story of James Wilks – elite Special Forces trainer and winner of The Game Changers The Ultimate Fighter – as he travels the world on a quest for the truth about meat, protein, and strength. Showcasing elite athletes, special ops soldiers, and visionary scientists. Wilks’ journey exposes outdated myths about food that not only affect human performance, but the health of the entire global population.”
